I'm kind of looking into building a computer so I can do some gaming and probably some commentaries/montages on youtube xD

Approximate Purchase Date: not on a deadline, so doesnt really matter to me

Budget Range: less than $1,500

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, video editing, music

Are you buying a monitor: no

Parts to Upgrade: new build so I guess all?

Do you need to buy OS: yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com

Location: seattle, washington, usa

Parts Preferences: look below :D 

Overclocking: yes

SLI or Crossfire: no

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 (preferably)

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: laptop has been downgraded to poop xD

So now to the parts I have compiled and prefer...

Case
Corsair Vengeance Series C70 Gunmetal Black

Motherboard
Gigabyte GA-Z87x-UD3H

Processor
Intel i5 4670k LGA 1150 Haswell
hopefully, someone can give me some input on a good overclock :D 

CPU Heatsink
Corsair Hydro Series H100i

Video Card
EVGA GTX 770 Superclocked w/ ACX Cooler

..and these components are the ones I'm still bent on choosing. Those five altogether add up to about $1,030, so I'm left with about $500 dollars to choose my..

PSU
Keyboard (preferably Cherry MX Blues or Browns)
Mouse
HDD
SSD
RAM

any form of advice will be taken into hindsight. :)  thank you
